Just easier than guess how long it's going to take in trimming "x" amount of shrubs, etc. This should get you a much ballpark estimate. Then add a removal/hauling/dump fee at the end of your total. But keep in mind...some shrubs are easier to trim than other and there are variables to consider. But this should get you started on estimating better.
